Doing a marathon swim with bursitis?
So I appear to have picked up bursitis (diagnosis based on a quick physio visit), probably due to a combination of bad posture, faults in stroke, lots of swim training etcetera. Been taking it easy the last few weeks but it hasn't so far cleared up. Have the Rotto swim this Saturday, the physio didn't seem concerned that I was going to attempt the swim, just curious if anyone has any good advice for making it through the swim? Thinking of mixing kids ibuprofen with at least some of the feeds, though don't want to kick up any GI distress.
